Johnny Depp is holding auditions to find writers for his latest movie Dali, reports say.

The actor is keen to find the best possible script for the film, in which he plays Spanish artist Salvador Dali.

A source is quoted as saying: “He’s open to working with anyone – from housewives to pensioners – if the script is right.”

Al Pacino and Peter O’Toole are also in talks to portray the surrealist painter in upcoming movies Dali and I and Goodbye Dali respectively.

Dali died of heart failure in 1989, aged 84.

NOTE FROM THE WEBMASTER: I’m receiving hundred of emails about this. I don’t have an address where the scripts can be sent, or if this news is really true. Any news on this will be posted on the main page.

    So, the response hudge enough to make up the minds and actually do this? No address yet until theres a great demand for it? I see I see. Okay this looks like a good idea, the movie that is, and as the position of a screenplay writer for the job may I say good luck in that. Best wishes to you and yours John… er Johnny!

    Maybe Johnny should just base it on Wikipidia? Seems Dalis life is chronicaled nicely there. He could base the movie on the real life of Dali, if that’s his plan.

    I am a Artist and avid movie watcher. I only watch TCM and Johnny is year 2000’s Charlie Chaplin… I would be a good contact for help with the writing or script as I can usually say or know before what is being said in movies before they say it. Oh by the way, my art is compared to chagall. I will be putting my work up on my space for all to see. is where I put my copywrited poetry. Check it out and let me know how you like my work. If so, let others know. But I digress, Johnny needs someone that knows how to show complacated material in his manner or eccentricity-Good luck.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
